That is actually the Vocas matte-box system. Here in the US it's being sold under the Century Optics/Schneider distribution. I would not purchase from that seller; he's not even describing the unit properly and has purposely eliminated the Vocas branding from the images.

Yeah, I was going to say, it looks like a Vocas.

Looks shady mate, I'd steer clear. Keep looking.

there are many indian ebay shops selling matte box.
is it a "leak" from the original ? (do they build the original in India ?).
Most of them are ok, at least cheaper than original, but quality is often lower.
I purchased one for 100$ and it was just as described.
You could be happy with this model, but personally, i find 300 UK pounds a bit expensive for a sunshade whatever you call it.

I have bought one of these from the same seller from Ebay i use it on my XL 2 and the build quality is fantastic, it dose the job perfectly. I know people are a bit worried about the product coming from india but they are good people and the products are top quality.
